Australian court backs finding radio royal prank call broke law
Australia's High Court on Wednesday backed the broadcasting watchdog's finding that an Australian radio station broke the law with a prank call to a British hospital taking care of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, paving the way for penalties. Two presenters at Sydney's 2Day FM called the London hospital in December 2012, pretending to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. On Wednesday, the High Court in Canberra ruled in favor of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), overturning a ruling by the lower Federal Court. The High Court said ACMA did have the power to determine the station had committed a criminal offence, as a preliminary to taking enforcement action under the Broadcasting Services Act.
